This week, the Teapotters are creating cards to cheer up one of our SCS friends who is having health issues. She likes pinks and butterflies, so this is where I headed. I learned how to do the double gatefold not long ago in an SCS challenge. I only have a few pieces of two-sided 12x12 card stock, and I had pulled this one out for the original challenge. Now seemed like a good time to use it. The die-cut white panel and flourish are from my stash, sent to me in various Tickles over the years. For the butterfly, I used some pink distress inks along with a gold pigment ink to color it, then die-cut it and added a few gems.

That is great double-sided paper, I love the contrast between the green and hot pink. I too struggle to find double-sided papers sometimes - but you can always stamp one side yourself! What a dainty butterfly die - and lovely flourish for it to perch on.
